Koçak,A.Ö. & M. Kemal,2012, List of two thousand species of pterygot insects in Van Province (East Turkey) (Results of the entomofauna project of Turkey – 7). Cesa News 81: 2-86, 37 figs. urn:lsid:zoobank.org:pub:943B741D-0B4F-494F-B93C-D2DE91A301F1 In the year of 2008, the Project Entomofauna of Turkey was begun privately. The main aim was to compile the hitherto recorded taxa of pterygot insects in Turkey. For this purpose, 24 pterygot orders in Turkey, their family, genus and species group taxa have been studying by the authors. Results of the fields studies have also been evaluating to some degree. Six reports of the temporary results were published so far. In these reports, not only the previously published information by other native or foreign authors were compiled, updated taxonomical or nomenclatural cases of the taxa, but also numerous new records to the provincial or country fauna were added. Unfortunately, there is no similar studying program, having such a perspective to the fauna of Turkey currently. Total number of the pterygot insect species of Turkey was reported by the authors on 8 January 2011 as 17629. Whereas, the current number reaches to 19492. Van, from the faunistical standpoint, is one of the little studied provinces of Turkey. Several years ago, the total pterygot fauna of this province was less than thousand species. Today, exact number of the species reached to 2000 species; among them, several hundred records belong to the field studies of the present authors. Expected number of species is around 5000 in the province. In the present paper, only the synonymical list of the species is given alphabetically together with their families, under the studied orders. Totally 16 orders are illustrated here representatively from various places of Van Province. Planned further faunistical studies in the province, such as Artos Mountain, Catak, etc. will be published separately.
